Antique 9ct Gold Bohemian Garnet Brooch Pin Rose Cut Stones Victorian c 1880
A beautiful, sparkling antique gold and Bohemian garnet brooch or pin - unmarked but tests as 9 carat. This is a lovely example of Bohemian garnet jewellery dating from the Victorian perod circa 1880.
The brooch has close set, closed back rose cut garnets on a rose gold mount. At its centre is a raised flower head type motif. The brooch is 1 5/8ths inch long and the long pin fastens securely to a c-shaped catch. It is in very good condition with just one of the tiny stones near the pin hinge having a chipped top, only noticeable when viewed with a loupe.
The garnets are a lovely rich colour and they catch the light beautifully. Bohemian garnets from the hills north of Prague possibly from Turnov from the mines on the mountain Kozákov.
